The Centre for Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) made progress on
its work with Moringa Oleifera, a Biodiesel producing shrub that bears valuable
oilseeds. According to the CJP, it has developed a micro-cutting mass
propagation technique using the plants developed through itsMOMax3™improved
seed product line and a set of best practices that will enable high oil yields.
CJP included Moringa Oleifera in its research portfolio on the basis of certain
solid credentials: a higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops, no
direct competition with food crops as it is a edible source of fuel, and no
direct competition with existing farmland as can be grown for both purpose
same, in year 2009. CJP scientists are continuously working on enhanced
genetics, agronomics and horticulture sciences to drive new varieties, more
knowledge around the plant’s nutritional requirements and more science-based
processes for the care and custody of the plant and have achieved reliable and
scalable results in Moringa energy farming.
CJP team’s Moringa Oleifera work has resulted in evolution of new variety
through scientific selection that will enable highly productive plantations of
the crop to be grown. In April this year, a new moringa variety named as
MARU-MORINGA was introduced. Maru Moringa: First yield starts in 4 to 6 months
after plantation & gives commercial yield up to 10 Years. (Per year two
seasons with better uniformity, improved self-branching, early flowering and
higher productivity. CJP’s elite Moringa Oleifera variety ‘Maru-Moringa (MOMax3™)’
will yield at maturity as high as 3-4000 liters of oil per hectare, with proper
nutrition and irrigation.
Even a superior genotype variety planted in inadequate soil and improperly
cared for, will be unable to reach its potential and will create dissatisfied
stakeholders. The CJP’s goal is to triple moringa yields within 10 years,
increase the oil content to 48 percent and in combination of other crops the
target oil yield is 1500 gallon per ha. Further, to increase the quality of the
oils and other products produced—while minimizing inputs including pesticides
and fertilizers. The years of continuous research, experiments and in
cultivating and breeding ofMoringa Oleifera and other biofuel crops, CJP was able to
develop a systematic breeding and cultivar development strategy. Newly bred
cultivars are extensively tested in multi-location trials and true to type
seeds are being produced with high quality standard
MOMax3™Elite HYV Moringa Oleifera Improved Seeds
Through itsMOMax3™ improved seed product line, CJP provides growers the highest yielding,
most uniform and profitable Moringa Oleifera in the world. Improved seeds
result in greater yield, uniformity and vigor while significantly reducing
Plantation costs for growers.MOMax3™improved varieties have been tested
and developed for a range of climatic and soil conditions.
CJP's proprietary technology for the mass production of Moringa Oleifera plants
from mini-cuttings obtained from the mother plant raised throughMOMax3™seed
enables a significant production increase over traditional propagation methods.
-quickly scales large Moringa Oleifera projects with consistent, high
yielding Moringa Oleifera.
-Facilitates production of the large volumes of low-cost crude Moringa
Oleifera oil required by major energy, oil and transportation consumers.
-Requires 1/75ththe land needed to produce cloned plants by micro
propagation, with the added benefits of HYV vigor, strong roots and overall
improved plant health.
Compared to the traditional stem-cutting rooting, mini-cutting has many
advantages leading to operational, technical, economical, environmental and
quality benefits. Operationally, the labor demanded and cost is markedly
reduced, due to elimination of labor intensive treatment with growth substances
and many other operations required in an extensive outdoor clonal hedge
management system. Many field operations like soil preparation, fertilization,
irrigation, cultivation, weeding, pest and disease control, sprout transport
etc are replaced by intensive activities in smaller indoor areas at much lower
costs, where the amount of chemicals used is also drastically reduced. The
rooting ability of mini-cutting is much higher than the stem-cuttings.
Mini-cuttings produce better quality root system.
Through multiple years of remarkable performance and a knowledge base gained
through the evaluation and pre-examination of CJP’s entire elite stock of
superior genotypes, CJP is now able to select and scale the top performingMOMax3™for
commercial projects in multiple geographies around the world.CJP is able to
more accurately forecast expected productivity and economics levels over the
lifetime of a project.
Moringa Oleifera ability to grow on marginal land and produce high quantities
of sustainable oil quickly gained it favor over alternative feedstocks.
Governments, investors and multinational enterprises began to adopt Moringa
Oleifera with hopes of addressing climate change, energy security and rural
development. CJP is also addressing production practices associated with
agronomic factors which are not directly related to the plants themselves, but
rather the strategy and set up of the plantation system.
